Crafted this lovely well balanced smoothie before my last race.  It works 90 mins-2 hours before your race as fuel and post race as a recovery snack.  Cherries are shown to decrease inflammation, as is ginger, and flax seed.  Beet root juice can been helpful for some to improve oxygenation of the blood.
